Also known as the Havana Film Festival, it was inaugurated on December 3, 1979 as a continuation of the Viña del Mar (1967 and 1969), Mérida (1968 and 1977) and Caracas (1974) festivals, as can be read in your website.

It was seen as the definitive response to the urgent demand for a space that would guarantee the systematic encounter between the continent’s cinematographies and their creators.
